"Alert Assist" Apps (Basic and Plus) are Alert and Safety applications designed to keep you alert/awake, or to alert you, or to alert someone automatically for you, if you are incapacitated, in danger or if you need help.
It is the mobile version of the "Dead Man's Switch" which is a switch that is automatically triggered in case the human operator becomes incapacitated, such as after an accident, kidnapping, or loss of consciousness. While similar apps already exist, they require you to manually send your SOS message or your location. How would you do this if you cannot move or if you are unconscious? "AlertAssist" watches over you.
AlertAssist Apps run in the background, they monitor your device's idle time (inactivity). The user has full control over any functionality (on/off) and any setting (customizable intervals of time, alarm period, ringtones, volume, numbers, etc).
"AlertAssist Basic" (Free): acts like a countdown timer that restarts to count every time the device is used, or if the device's screen is touched while the siren sounds. The timer has one countdown siren and one alarm siren. Failing to touch the device's screen while the countdown siren sounds, triggers off the alarm siren(louder). Failing to touch the device's screen while the alarm is going on, triggers an automatic alert, via text message (SMS) to any preset phone number of the user's choice (family, friend, neighbor...). The text message can contain any message or help request like "Call me" or "I need help" or "Check on me" or "Call 911 Please" or "Wake me up" or "Remind me of..." etc.
**Use this version as a wake-up alarm, and alert someone to check on you if you do not wake up. Have a sick friend or Parent? Offer them this App to alert you if they need help. This is the perfect gift to your old grandparents too!
